Why is the price of stainless steel shot high?

  Today, with the continuous decline of steel grit and steel shot, the price of stainless steel shot has been hovering at a high level, which makes people very confused. At the same time, we should not only ask why. As the steel shot of shot blasting machine works continuously for a long time, higher requirements are put forward for its performance:

  1. The steel shot shall have sufficient hardness and strength to bear the cyclic friction of the steel shot in the whole shot blasting machine.

  2. The steel shot should have high wear resistance and small friction coefficient, that is to make the steel shot smooth enough to reduce the friction consumption of the steel shot.

  3. The steel shot shall have enough plasticity and toughness and high fatigue strength to bear the reaction force, impact and vibration of the steel shot in the work.

  4. The steel shot shall have good thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance, so as to facilitate the loss of heat and the corrosion of workpiece with oil.

  Among steel grit and steel shot, stainless steel shot is a "noble", and its price is staggering. The processing technology of stainless steel shot is basically the same as that of steel wire shot cutting, but the stainless steel wire is too hard, which requires very high cutting tools of shot cutting machine, and the cutting tools wear very fast, the amount of cutting tools is very large, and the cutting tools for steel wire shot cutting are very expensive, Therefore, the cost will rise significantly, which leads to the high cost of stainless steel shot cutting. With the increase of the cost, the price will naturally rise.

  The second reason is that the yield is low, because the cutting tools for cutting steel wire and shot wear quickly and are often replaced, which directly leads to the very low yield of stainless steel shot, which is also one of the reasons for the high price of stainless steel shot.

  Another important reason is that although the price of steel has been reduced, the price of non-ferrous stainless steel has not fallen much, that is, the raw material price of stainless steel shot is still high, which is another important factor causing the high price of stainless steel shot.
